I have a very senior pup and Alex takes such amazing care if her! She keeps her safe, gets her outside, and makes sure she eats. It’s a relief to know how well she’ll be cared for when I’m out of town.

Natalie B is a very caring pet sitter. She has watched our three dogs on multiple occasions and have always been a responsible sitter and walker. Our pets love her and enjoy being with her. She always follows our instructions and gives us a good summary of events while we were away. You can trust your pet with her as she takes care of them like they are her own. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a dog sitter or walker.

Matilda is the kind of girl who will ask to pet every stranger's dog she meets, no matter how sandy, stinky, big or small she really just loves the animals. Plus, the fact she’s been able to take care of my disastrous duo consisting of a hyper energetic yapping Pomeranian Yorkie, and my cute but conniving Queensland heeler, your dogs could not be in better hands.

Ryan was amazing! It was so nice to go out of town knowing that my cat was getting probably more attention than I give him when I'm at home! I recently moved into the area and I was nervous about finding a pet sitter with short notice. Ryan worked hard to win over my shy boy and they were best buddies in less than a day or two! I received dozens of photos a day. Ryan did all sorts of "beyond the call of duty" items, as well. I wholeheartedly recommend Ryan to take care of your fur baby. I know who I will contact next time I have plans to go out of town!

Juliette was awesome and super attentive with my cat Obi. She asked about Obi’s food schedules and daily routines before and during our “getting to know you” visit. When I noticed Obi had puked (through camera on the feeder), Juliette went to visit Obi as soon as she could, and very promptly updated me on how Obi’s doing. The after-visit summaries were also very detailed. I loved receiving them and also seeing the lovely cat pics. I would absolutely have Juliette pet sit again. :)

About: I have always grown up with all kinds of animals-- cats, dogs, hermit crabs, rats and hamsters, and even took in a squirrel in high school! I have been animal sitting/ baby sitting for money since 8th grade and will ensure to provide attentive care to your pets. I am currently enrolled at SBCC and taking mostly online classes, so I wanted to find something to do with my free time that I liked doing. I would love to be considered to take care of your pet! As a freshman at Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) balancing part-time work, I've structured my schedule to accommodate my studies and job responsibilities, except for Wednesdays. With planning, I'm completely capable and adaptable to a need schedule. I live in an apartment right next to Santa Barbara City College and the beach is convenient and there is plenty of grass nearby, but unfortunately, there's no yard directly where I live.

Lana is my neighbor and she has been dog sitting my little Yorkie for a year now. Lana is such a caring and loving person. Teddy gets really excited every time he spends time with her if its going on a walk or even spending the day/night. Lana is also very flexible and always works around my schedule. I highly recommend her to watch your pup! Your dog is going to be in good hands just like mine.

About: Being raised in a home with multiple dogs and cats, I have deeply enjoyed the role of care taking, playing, exercising, and cohabitating with animals. For the last fifteen years I have supported many friends and families in taking care of their pets. Due to graduate studies and apartment life, I do not have the joy of having an animal in my life and am hoping to support my studies with additional income while enjoying supporting animals and families. I look forward to meeting yours, supporting them, and you! I currently have a flexible schedule, as I work remotely four days a week. My ideal situation would be to establish a relationship where ongoing, consistent support can be available for both me and your pet/family! I am available for dog, cat, and house sitting, I have full overnight availability, and while I am not in a position to house your furry family members, I am available to come tend to them in your space. At this time, I am not available to bring animals to my home. I am, however, available to come tend to your furry family members at your home.
